(Hope no-one reads that as beginning to die - I could get all sorts of weird comments)
I decided to have a fleece weekend this weekend, and wanted to play with some natural dyes. I've never used them before and have loads of fleece that I got rather over exuberant about last year, so have started with a mordant of Chrome something or other ..ate, (my chemistry teacher would be so proud of me)! follwed by a dye of brazilwood.
It's all still in the boiler thing "doing it" as the water hasn't cooled yet, but here is a photo progress. . . . .
Fleece in mordant of Chrome something.
Fleece in dye of brazilwood. This was taken a few hours ago, and the water has got a lot darker since, but the fleece is a stunning rose colour. Will try to take piccies tomorrow or soon of fleece.
